Lecturing & leaders job

  1. 1. The Way Of The Spiritual Leader (Part 1)Section 3. - Lecturing And The Mission Of A Minister1. Lecturing Is The Leaders Major Job1) Ministers have to SpeakEverybody, put out your tongue. The tongue, when does it work? It works when you eat. Then,for whom does it work? It works for yourselves. When do you think can the tongue work forothers? It is the time when your tongue works more for others than for yourselves, whichmakes you a man of virtue. So, teachers and professors are the ones whose tongue is mostlyused for others rather than used for having their meal. Those people are great.Have you ever cried for others! Its easy for people to cry for themselves, isnt it? So, haveyou cried for other people? There are two kinds of tears. One who sheds tears for himself orherself will go to hell, and one who sheds tears for others will go to heaven. So, are you goingto use your tongue, or will you not? [We will]This lady who graduated from seminary, you dont like to talk, do you? However, you like towrite and think. Thats the enemy. You have to do what you dont like. People who couldnt getgood results will see progress when they try what they dont want to do. Do you understand?Now, do you like to give speeches? You dont like it, and thats why you cannot witness. If youlike to lecture to others, you will bring a good result in witnessing. (96-172)If you dont have people to lecture to, go to the park and lecture for 18 hours. If you cannotfind people you want to lecture on, pray such as, "Heavenly Father, I am not lecturing athome today, and I will give lectures at park for 18 hours." And do it as you prayed. Try to doit everyday for 6 months. If you give lectures to you friends for 3 months, you must be tiredof it. Do you think so? [Yes, Father]. How long have you lectured? I gave a lecture for 18hours on the new years day of last year. Do you think I did that because its easy to do? 24hours. I continuously talk and lecture from when I wake up until I close my eyes at night. Ihave lived in that way all my life. (107-250)The reason why I gather you here is to guide you into the right course. If you break downwhile you are lecturing, I will take care of you. If you die when you o so, I will hold the funeralfor you. Then, you will not be accused, saying that you lectured until you died followingFathers direction. How serious is it, then? You have to lecture at the risk of your life. God hassupported me because I have done so, and that makes Rev. Moon, who could have perished,be a globally famous person. Thats how I have survived. (107-249)When we think over why we talk through our mouth, we realize that everything in Heaven andEarth is connected through the harmonized mouth. Everything can be connected. (86-165)2) Lecture EverydayAfter you wake up, you should be worried about where you will go and give a speech, just likea mother is worried about breast-feeding her child. If you wander around hesitating to go thisway or that way, you need to pray like "Heavenly Father, I dont know where I should go andwitness." If you really dont know where to go, try to tell a fortune by yourself. Spit on youpalm, and clap with other hand. Then go the way where the biggest spit drops. Or hit the midpoint of the ball point pen. If it turns to the right, then go to the right. Thats the right way.You should apply the Principle to your life and environment. Do you understand? (60-345)
  2. 2. If you can give a speech, do it every day and night. Do it like eating a meal. If you cannot findsomeone, go out and do it on the street. If you really cant find anybody, see members andcry holding them, or give a lecture to your mother or friends. (96-141)You are leaders, arent you? Raise your hand those who make speeches everyday as a leader.I will make and give a schedule for you, too. if there is a person who lives with you at yourchurch, wake up together and follow the schedule. It is the rule of our church that everymember should wake up at 6 oclock, isnt it? [Yes] Go to bed at 12 oclock, sleep for 6 hours,which is the rule of the Unification Church, wake up at 6 oclock, and wash and prepare otherthings for 30 minutes. 30 minutes is enough. Then do lecture from 6:30 to 8:30 for 2 hours.It is for the growth of the members.After you have a couple of members, take them to witness. Have breakfast for 30 minutes,then go out for witnessing. Witness together on the streets. You should meet one by one andwitness by devoting yourself for them.2. Leaders Basic Training1) How to Give a LectureHow are you going to give a lecture from now on? When you do that, dont think that you arelecturing about only the Divine Principle. You have to think that you are talking about Godshistory and Fathers history. Then what are the histories? I talk about them in order to inheritthose histories and to unite them. Do you understand what Im saying?This is the reason: when I hold anothers hands from the beginning, they are not my hands.Whats that? Thats not my hands. Then, something inner and indescribable should come outfrom you and you should feel it. Once you open your mouth, you have to be fascinated withyour words. If you pray like that, that prayer is mystical. You need to feel the moment thatyou can get intoxicated at your prayer.Then why is it like that? Thats Divine Principle. If a subject and object have give-and-takeaction with each other, force will be exert, ed. If they give and take centering on their heart,force accompanying inspiration of heart will come out. What is the force going to do? It willrestore and re-create the heart. (157-254)2) Standing as a LeaderEven when you walk at dusk or under the moon light, the heart that you feel is precious. Ifyou pray, you should think of Jesus and his heart when he was walking and wandering on thestreets. With reflecting all those histories. . .Suppose you try to have the heart of the peoplerepresenting those times thinking that how Heaven will see those steps? How much blessingwill you have? How precious the time will be if you walk alone, meditate alone, pray alone andread Fathers words alone?The leaders are not living like that. They dont hold the position of a public figure.If you think on a larger scale it will bring the past and it can combine with the presentfeeling. . . If you see the sun, Jesus must have seen the sun and other saints and wise peoplemust have seen it, too. The thing is the way they saw it. Water and air are the same.You should be interested in those things. You need to feel it and appeal to Heaven, and reportyour feeling. if so, it would be naturally connected. Do you understand? [Yes]. Now, theunification of the heart will be the major thing needing to be done. Lets revive it.
  3. 3. The reason why Im talking about this is that you have to change your attitude when you givea Divine Principle lecture. When you give a lecture, you shouldnt do it from your point of view.So, when you pray, you dont have to pray anything else. You have to pray about the Principleof restoration. When you pray about Adam and Eve, you need to stand in their position. If youpray about Noah, you need to become Noah himself. You are the Abraham in his family. Youare the Moses at his time. Restoration will be done in this manner. Restoration will not bedone unless you build a revival of the heart of those historical people. You should pray withthat kind of view all the time. (157-262)3. Lecturing And Witnessing1) Speech has the Power of Creation.Try to talk about the contents of Divine Principle until you get tired of it. It will be excitingonce you do that. We should know that this speech has the power of recreation. I know thatwherever I go, God is with me, and with that heart I can influence the people. Do youunderstand? [Yes]Thats the way we can sway this country. I cannot go to every place by myself. I have builtbridges between the people. So, you are in the same boat, and you have commonresponsibility. Do you want the providence to be accomplished fast or slow? [fast]. (107-252)You should know that wherever you go the blessing will be there. In the place you speak out,there will be a miracle of revival and recreation. We need such a crater of love in everyplace.(166-83)Once you know the principle, you want to open you mouth. You may not want to talk aboutyour family business, but you will lose your appetite unless you speak about the DivinePrinciple. Do you know that?Can you complain? Can you say that I am wrong? You should want to visit and talk to peopleday and night. If you repeat it, then there will be creation. When I see the lecturer speak ofDivine Principle, he speak softly at first, but in 15 minutes -- "Wa! Wa" he shouts. He is soexcited and intoxicated. Have you ever felt like that? (167-330)4. The Attitude Of A Minister To Lecturing1) The Minister must Feel the LectureYou are now giving the lecture on anti-communism, but between the lecture on anti-communism and the Divine Principle, which one do you feel is more interesting? I want to ask.Which is more interesting? [The Divine Principle is better] You want to give a Divine Principlelecture? Do you really feel that way? It is true that giving life to the man who is about to die isthe best thing.If you become like that, the atmosphere will be charged. After staying in such an atmospherefor a few days, when you see cars running around on the street, those things seem verystrange. You will feel like you are walking on the clouds. When you walk over a bridge, youwouldnt know whether you are walking on the Pacific Ocean or not. You will feel like you wentto the spirit world and became a spirit. That is how you would feel. This is exactly what itmeans that we are entering the land of mystery.
  4. 4. In order to make such motivation, you must become such a mover, the yeast. You must havethe subjectivity. Heart is a yeast. Have you seen anyone who has not been melted by heart?(157-258)When you listen, you must listen well. When you speak, you must shed sweat, blood, andtears. That is what is scary. These days, when you give a Divine Principle lecture, you arelecturing only with the formulated method. As if you are going for work, you make anappointment and say "lets start the lecture at so-and-so time." This is not right. You cannotdo that. This is why I gave a direction in Korea that when one gives a lecture, he must do it ashe sweats, as he sweats. All 36 blessed families who are early members gave lectures in thatway. They were educated in such a way. (96-323)When you lecture the Divine Principle, you should not lecture as if you know everything aboutthe Bible verses and other information with only the material that you have noted down andmemorized. Before you speak about the core context, you must know the entire context andfeel a new taste through it.In order to move the audience, you must shed tears holding on to the Divine Principle. Youmust be strongly attached to the Divine Principle that you would read the book throughout thenight with the feeling that the time is too precious to lose. Also, you must be the one whowould experience mystery from every page. See what you feel lecturing after experiencingthat. See how the audience is moved and respond. Without any doubt, the audience will benewly moved. This is the principle. (30-130)When you lecture, you must think what will you leave during the lecture. When you speak,you must think what will you leave during your speech. When your hand moves, you mustthink what will your hand leave at the place where your hand went. When you act, you mustthink what will you leave. You must pledge all these. This is why, even if you go the difficultway, even if you go the exhausting way, you must always think what will you leave. You mustthink what will you leave as you always walk the difficult and exhausting way. Your excitementmust be overflowing. You cannot be exhausted. This is what is needed. (96-331)You should not stop giving lectures. How wonderful the expression is. This is why if one whoknows the taste is told not to lecture, will die if he doesnt speak. He will feel alive when hefeels the taste again from speaking overnight. Otherwise, he wouldnt want to live.Now, I am very famous and so busy that I cannot give the Divine Principle lecture. The olddays when I was raising members were the most exciting period. Now I am very bored. Nomatter how late it gets, even if it was getting close to mid-night (12:00 a.m.) and themembers wanted to go home, I had them sit down and I continued speaking from theintoxication and the excitement of talking. Even if they say, "Please Father, it is twelve oclock,you need to sleep," I dont listen to them. However, when it became 1 oclock and I am aboutto stand up, I see them standing up before me. At that moment, I feet wordless.You are smiling because you agree with me. Unless you are a Unification Church member, youdont know what I am saying. You must be intoxicated while you lecture, you must shed a tearwhile you lecture, you must be grateful while you lecture, and you must think while youlecture. How wonderful that is. How exciting that is.If you dont lecture, if you dont feel the taste, you would say that you are dying. Do you dothat? Because God is always with you when you lecture, there will be a strong flow ofelectricity. You will feel the power that seems billions of volts is flowing. Also, you will feel thatthe world is shaking because of you. How thrilling this would be? When you feel that your eyeswont close even if you want to close them. Even in the middle of sleep, your eyes will besuddenly opened. That is possible.
  5. 5. What I am saying is not only for the sake of our Unification Church, but I am appealing to thepatriotic-for the sake of America and to save Korea. With thought, you have to make theatmosphere. America, now, is gradually perishing because of the corruption of the youth. Thisis why we have to speak to them with the patriotic thought that we will save America with ourhand.2) If You Lecture Enthusiastically, You Will Make Contact withthe Spiritual WorldWhen I talk about one thing, I speak in a situation of serious Shim Jung (heart), sweat anddrink water. No one in the world would know the taste of water at that time. How does thewater taste? You cannot compare with the taste of coke, or the water with honey. The taste isvery different. Every time, the taste is different. Do you know what I am saying?You must discover that. If you dont feel that, you cannot sense the spiritual feeling. Youcannot respond to every thing about the spiritual world. If you feel that, your ears will firstbecome very sensitive and hear what others are saying even if they speak in a distance.Without knowing that, you wont be able to differentiate whether the spirit of the spiritualworld is good or bad. You must know this. It is not that you know by seeing it, but your mindknows it. The eyes of your mind are in the higher position than the eyes that know byseeing. Do you understand what I am saying?Why am I saying this? This is because You still have a long way to go. You must know that.You must not be proud of yourself. This is why the Bible says, "the one with the empty mind isthe fortunate one that will receive everything." This is the same principle. All these words aresaying the same thing. Do you understand?However, you are not giving lectures. Without giving lecture, there is no way to find the world.While giving a lecture, you will be able to have contact with the spiritual world. If such aphenomena happens, you will lecture in a half-conscious state. If you lecture from thePrinciple of the Creation to the Fall in a half-conscious state, everything that you lectured willhappen.This is why you must know how the activities of the spiritual world and reality fit. You mustsee and feel. In front of your eyes, it is in front of your eyes. This is why you must becomecrazy, crazy. You must continue the lecture as you become crazy. (96-170)****
